About my 5th time visiting the restaurant. Always great service and the staff are very polite. On this one occasion, the food wasn't as hot as it should havd been; this may be because there was a few large parties. But other than that, a great experience.

The food was delicious and well-presented, the restaurant is nicely laid out and the décor is modern but with traditional Chinese touches, the atmosphere was friendly, if a little noisy, but we had a really lovely time. The only thing I would say spoilt the experience a little was the rudeness of the hostess at the desk, who did not have our online booking written down and she was ruder still when I told her I had a printed booking confirmation and confirmed our booking had been made online. We were seated quickly after that however. I felt the waiting staff could have been a little friendlier also. I would recommend taking a printed confirmation of your booking if you book a table online as evidence.

I made a group booking for a Christmas lunch with my church youth group. We are allocated our own private which had a capacity of 20 people but it turned out that I had 22 attendees. The manager (Michael) was kind enough to make adjustments to accommodate the extra people. There was more than enough food to go around so everyone was happy including the 3 pescatarians of the group (prawn and veg dishes). The karaoke was a very nice touch too. only reason it didn't get a full mark was that I was served a small glass of box juice that I normally buy for £1.20 but was charged about £2.40 for a small glass. Thought that was quite steep. other than it's great.

We went to the Excel and decided to look on our mobile for somewhere to eat. This place came up and was close by, so I booked a table using my mobile. It was easy to book and got confirmation straight away. We had a great greeting from the staff and was well looked after. The food was delicious and service was great. We could not fault the service or food. We would definitely visit again, when we are in the area and would recommend people to dine here. Thank you all.

Great if you love msg. All food tasted rather similar. We were a party of 8 and they moved us from a central table to a table in a corner, for no apparent reason (restaurant was busy but not full, the central table remained empty for a long time). Around the table in the corner were boxes of drinks and crisps, as well as an open jam roll (!) and all sorts of cleaning products. Furthermore, there was a draft coming from a back door, had to put my coat on. When I complained to the waitress she said it was not cold, after all she was wearing a T-Shirt. She then brought a tea-pot full of hot water to help me warm up - totally random!!!! I ordered three different platters to share for starters, she repeated a slightly different selection, and after a couple of tries to get her to understand what I really wanted, I just gave up. When the platters finally arrived, they were neither what I had asked nor what she had said. The main courses were as ordered, though, as were the drinks. Price was low considering the location.

DO NOT BOTHER! Absolutely terrible service and the food was mediocre. Visited China Palace on Father's Day and we received bad experience. In the end we requested for the bill which came 20 mins later, we refused to pay the service charge and they have added few food on it that we didn't order. Seems that they were happy to take them out but no apology when we told them that the service was bad. The waitresses slammed the food on the table the whole time. Ridiculous!

I made a reservation but there was no need to as there were many spaces on a saturday night. My only concern was the parking space - we used to go here before the changes and there are less parking spaces than before now. Luckily we were able to park up in front or behind them but there was no indication it was ok so was worried the whole time we were there. The food was ok i will return again.
